An invitation

I come to you

As the memory of the person

I once was

 

As one who understands

Finally

That he has been alive

Only in the biological sense

Of the Word.

 

For I have lived for a long time

In the perception of a reality

And its material experience

 

That I now understand

To be false

 

For me, it took on the structure

And appearance

Of a Game.

 

A beautiful, meticulously designed Game which

Promised its players the opportunity to unlock

Their limitless potential.

 

And so I learned its rules

And applied them to every aspect of my life

 

I dutifully and studiously learned its rules

Accepted its sacrifices

And climbed the path toward its most lofty rewards

 

At any point, if you had asked me

How are you doing…

In the Game?

 

I would have told you

I was winning.

 

But in truth

 

On a scale of 1-10

In terms of actual success

I was only a 3

Acting like I was a 9.

 

And in that cycle

Of self-told fantasies

Which I created out of

A need to justify the Game

I slowly moved in a ritual drama

That only brought me

Into incrementally more competitive

And isolated stances.

 

Ultimately separating me from all the players

For whom I knew my Spirit had only

The most innate and unconditional Love

But against whom my victories increasingly

Could only be secured by their material and social

And spiritual deficits

 

And so it was

That one dark and infinite night

I woke up

In a dream

The kind of dream you have

In which you, for the first time,

Are given the sensation of what it is

To actually be awake

 

For it was at that moment

That I was shown the blinding

Undeniable truth

That I was not playing the Game

But the Game was playing me

 

In that moment, I was shown my self

Not as the independent, powerful

Self-actualizing player

I had come to believe my self to be

 

No

 

Instead I woke up to the vision of my self

As a highly functional, flawlessly programmed

Cog

In an giant unseen apparatus whose sole function was

To justify and sustain the existence of the Game

 

And I knew then that I had a choice

Either transcend and escape the material contract

I had made with the Game

Or perish as its servant

 

I chose the first option.

 

If you are reading this

And if you feel that even the slightest

Part of my story resonates with your experience

I want to tell you that there is a place

There is a community

There is a path

 

That is illuminated by the light

of our collective cosmic destiny

That can lift you out of the bondage

Of the old and tired and corrupt Game

 

And unlock from within you the magical truth

 

That to live the life that you had always dreamed

Or perhaps never allowed yourself to dream

You only need to ask.

 

Ask to remember that simple truth

Which you have forgotten

But which has not forgotten you.

 

That truth which you agreed to forget

As a condition to enter the arena

Of this existence

 

And the Game

Which has the solitary goal

Of making you believe that it

Is the bequeather of all power

The source of all life

 

And the God

Of all things

 

If you are done with that Game

And if you have that deep

Irrational feeling

As I did

That we have been living in

Some kind of magical lie

 

One that exists only for the purpose

Of pressing us to wake out of

Our collective trance

 

Then this is an invitation to come

And join those who are making that

Brave and sacrificial leap

Into the fabric of the external realm

 

Which has always been, and will always be

Long before our human family fell

Into this beautiful sleep

 

——-

 

We invite you

To Assemble

For one last time

 

Not as a parade of individual

Sacrificial trophies

Erected to the glory of the Game

 

But as newly born, freshly awakened

Fully embodied collective who understand

They are on this Earth for a purpose

 

To remember

 

That this is the moment your

Whole life was designed

And created for.

this reality is not primary

I received a few questions and challenges posed to my Mystical Trump post.  One of them gives me the chance to answer them all.  It comes from AM:

“Interesting. I’m trying to think about it in terms of the relationship between the market and society in Polanyi’s Great Transformation. The idea that the two realms aren’t really separate, but rather society’s response to crisis in the market makes the continuation of capitalist markets possible. So seeing them in a dialectical relationship.

In this context I guess my question would be a somewhat basic one: in what ways does or doesn’t a move towards inward non-opposition perpetuate the dialectical relationship between seemingly oppositional forces?”

This is a great question, and it is where it gets a little complicated. The core plank of my position lies in this graf:

what i would suggest however, in the context of (r)evolutionary mysticism is that we not feed into that binary impulse that drives those groups who are currently engineering reality for the great part of the world.  but rather, that we consider that by opposing things with the intent of destroying them, we edify them in the process.

The simple answer to your question lies in the nature of dialectics. In its purest form, a dialectic is a discourse between differing points of view on a subject.  In the case of political or social conflict, it is the semantic expression of a chaotic sine wave.

sound-wave

So in the pure mathematical/physics context, if we occupy the polar viewpoint to our ‘opposition,’ and we are engaged in a dialectical process, then we are an implicit participant and driver of the opponent’s momentum and identity.  It follows then that if we simply abandon our positions and thus remove the binary curvature in the wave’s force/resistance, it will have the effect of collapsing the entire structure.

But that is a fallacy.

One has only to look at history to know that there have been times when hatred and anti-humanism have marshaled enough force to very nearly approach world domination if not for the willful opposition of an opposing force.  

In some cases agents of change have been able to destroy all opposition so that they simply become the structure of reality themselves. They become the new paradigm, and the dialectic continues, within the parameters established by the new order.

This is very much what has happened to the world post-Industrial Revolution, and why Polanyi is able to make him point, that in the capitalist paradigm, even opposition feeds the capitalist enterprise.

I am proposing something very different here.  Going inward is not simply about becoming silent and meditating oneself into an innocuous trance.  No. Not at all.

When I write about (r)evolutionary mysticism, I am invoking an ancient practice that is more akin to alchemy than non-violent opposition.  This is the stuff of the mystery schools who were forced underground for millennia because of the (real and perceived) threat they posed to those who ruled humanity on the material plane.  You can find the substance of this deeply subversive thinking through history from Plato, Hermes, Meister Eckhart, and then the modern mystics like Mabel Collins and Helena Blavatsky.

In this line of (r)evolutionary thinking, the reality we are experiencing is not primary.  It is a recipient realm, which receives the projection – much limited and distorted by virtue of the time/space confinements of 3D – of a higher, more true source. And it is from this realm that we can connect our earthly consciousness to attain incredibly powerful transmutational power.  Power which will not simply neutralize the forces of hatred and fear which we ‘oppose’, but transform them through the vibrational frequency that we attain in our alignment with, and tuning to, the primary, non-material realm.

If we simply ‘oppose’ Trump from within the confines of the same paradigm, we are still locked in the same structure and what you get is another crest in the wave without ever transmuting the generators that created him.  (Hence, the 50 year dialectic of Carter-Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama-Trump).

So this is what I am talking about when I say, in my Mystical Trump piece, that we should:

vanish into the interior realm, where true generative power resides.

But of course, knowing how to connect with and channel a new paradigmatic vibration is not a simple thing.  And it is not something that is taught.  But, I will tell you, it is something we know innately to do.  Just as much as we know that sitting near a 1000 year old redwood nourishes us more than hugging a telephone pole.  But we must be willing to let go of the primacy of this plane, and all its amazing spectacles, in order to bring in the new/ancient thing that is what we are all so hungry for.

Let’s bring it back to Trump.

This is a phenomena that is being generated by people who are responding to a perceived threat. The campaign was driven by a system of phobias that essentially create an ‘us vs them’ dynamic which was enough to position Trump as a savior for the millions of Americans who feel deep-seated frustration and anger at their diminished economic and social agency.

The reality is that what these people are experiencing is real.  And what Steve Bannon and the Trump team did was take that anger and channel it into a campaign that reflected it back in order to create a force of energy that would propel them to a electoral victory.

(r)evolutionary mysticism is not concerned with opposing these people.  It is not concerned with opposing Trump or Steve Bannon or whatever other interchangeable body suit the ruling paradigm throws up to sustain its steady march toward oblivion.

It is concerned with a solution that is appealing to the deepest facets of all humanity.  It is about ending the dialectic we are currently trapped in and establishing an entirely new playing field.  Call it paradigm shift, call it a spiritual awakening, call it the solution to quantum physics’ search for a unifying theory.

Mysticism is based on the belief that we are in a place in which we are unable to feel the innate interconnectedness of all things, but that we all emanate from the same creative energetic field, and that is something we very simplistically call ‘love’.

And there is no cleaner and purer and more profoundly transformative vibration than love.  But ‘love’ as we experience it on the material plane is a mere fragment of its computational and transmutational power in the non-material realm.  What I have experienced in my own limited journeys to the primary realm is so beautiful and massive and ancient and futuristic… it is like a wave of creative potential that has the power to sink all of these zero-sum antiquated architectures and simultaneously float all boats to a new kind of world that we have only ever dreamed about.  And it is just as real as everything we are experiencing now.

You just have to close your eyes,

what i believe

i have come to understand that my reality is generative, not deterministic.

i mean we do not live in a paradigm that is set and pre-determined as we are taught. but rather, one that is generated by the inputs (thoughts, feelings, actions) of the human beings that are generating, or transmitting, it.

further, the engine that generates this reality – from the transmitting being to the experience they are having – is something we have come to lazily call ‘consciousness’, but which is actually a much more quantifiable factor, which can be described as vibratory frequency.

reality is a generative construction that moves from the inside out.  not the outside in.

two points about that:

  • the best way to understand this way of seeing reality is as an algorithmically-driven platform. in other words, reality is created by highly tuned formulas that convert non-material impulses to a material experiential realm.
  • this is confusing for many because we currently inhabit a paradigm that is actually highly deterministic (ie. for 99% of humanity, their experience feels very much beyond their own power of creation). and that is because humans have been conditioned to believe that that is what reality is; something that is generated from outside of them.  so we are generating a deterministic reality paradigm. a very tricky business indeed.

so the vast majority of human beings believe we are born into a world paradigm that they cannot change and which they just have to accept.  this has unquantifiable impact on the way that we live in the world and what we believe is possible.

the first step toward a reboot of the human operating system is to teach our people that the reality paradigm is generative and thus transactional: which means that we are in a constant state of negotiation with the reality we are experiencing.

it is created by, and for, us.

this is a revelation of the highest (r)evolutionary order. it means any single individual can gain agency in the process of reality-creation by learning about the power their thoughts, emotions, and actions have in creating their moment-to-moment experience.

because what we are experiencing is a direct output of our vibrational state and it can change moment-to-moment based on the nature and content of the vibration we are emitting.

in other words: if reality is generative and transactional, it is transmutable.

the great problem is that certain groups have more generative power than others. and so it is that some can say, “this is your world, i am just living in it.” in most cases, these generator populations have no idea of the power they wield in creating the experience of others. this is by design.

understanding the nature of reality, and our ability to re-orient ourselves within it, will be the key determining factor of whether the human civilization escapes the extinction algorithm we are currently programmed for.
